    In the far background I believe that is the "Old" Post Office building. Probably not called that back then...

    I remember walking from the Capitol, to the Lincoln Memorial, across this bridge, to Arlington Cemetery. That was one loooong walk. That was one LOOOONG bridge. It think it took us 20 minutes just to cross the bridge on foot. Very nice shot, though.
